- Marie Lorenzini
It is with great sadness that the family of Marie (Gaudreault) Lorenzini of Essex Junction, Vt., announces her passing, at age 54, on July 4, 2019, at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Mass.
Marie was born on September 1, 1964, in Montréal, Canada. Her family moved to the United States in 1969, settling in Barre, Vt., and establishing what would become lifelong roots in the community. Marie attended Saint Monica’s Catholic School and then graduated from Spaulding High School in 1982. Highly dedicated, Marie earned a diploma in social music from the National Guild of Piano Teachers. She also was dutifully employed in delivering newspapers and convalescent home care, and at the Country House.
Upon moving to the Chittenden County, Vt., area in early adulthood, her energy flourished. She established her professional goals and formed many great experiences and relationships throughout her career. Some of her greatest passions included playing the piano, golfing, cooking, gardening and spending time with her loved ones.
Marie cared deeply for others in every facet of her life. Marie was a cherished friend to all who knew her and found great importance in supporting those she loved through good times, bad, and everything in between. She held strong values about treating all people with kindness, respect and love. Marie was truly an inspiration to all and manifested her joy by sharing it with the world.
Marie is survived by her husband, Thomas; parents, Alain and Danielle; daughter Laura (and her partner, Justin); siblings Michael (and his wife, Lisa), Manon (and her partner, Jason) and Patrick (and his wife, Lora); grandchildren Addyson, Braydon and Eleanor; niece Monique (and her husband Wayne); nephew Kyle; stepchildren Mindy and Michael; the Lorenzini family; the Wetzel family; and many more loving friends and family than can be listed.
Marie is predeceased by her grandparents, Donat and Jeanette Gaudreault, and Gertrude and Raoul DeRoy; and her beloved furry friend, Harley.
A celebration of life is planned for Sunday, August 11, 2019, at 2 p.m. at Hope Davey Park, 116 Maple St., Waterbury Center, VT. Please feel free to bring photos, mementos and memories to share.
